Ineffective power play hurting Red Wings | The Detroit News

The Red Wings have no power-play goals in their last five games, a stretch in which they are 0-for-11. In the past eight games, they are 1-for-19.

That’s... not ideal.

After living in the top 10 of the NHL rankings on the power play for most of the first quarter of the schedule, the Wings have fallen to 16th heading into Sunday’s games, at an even 20 percent.

Also not good.
